YouTube playing videos super fast and/or skipping to the end

Lately YouTube playing videos have been playing super fast or skipping straight to the end. I mean, they are horribly fast.

Things to know:

  • I am posting here because I can't determine whether browsers may have settings unique to them that I need to change. This also happens in Chrome, but not Edge.
  • I was recently forced to upgrade to Windows 11 - I can't say this issue happened exactly at that time, but fairly recently after the upgrade. I am running Windows 11 Pro.
  • This does NOT happen when playing in a private browser window, either Firefox or Chrome.
  • Having the Mozilla VPN on or off has no effect.
  • I am sure the playback speed is set to normal. I have tried changing the playback speed to anything but normal and then back to normal and the current video runs correctly UNTIL I play the next video.
  • This does not happen with Vimeo.
  • It does not happen in FF for Android.

Any questions, thoughts, or advice would be appreciated.

Here's how I resolved the issue of YouTube skipping to the end of videos instead of playing them normally. The extension Malwarebytes (MWB) has three components to it:

  1. Ads/Trackers
  2. Malware
  3. Scams

You can turn any or all of them off for certain websites.

While on YouTube.com open the MWB extension manager (just click on the MWB icon at the top of FF and Chrome) and turn off Ads/Trackers and that resolved the issue.

All of these extensions seem to have no effect for me as I tested them through troubleshooting individually: DuckDuckGo Privacy Extension Facebook Container Grammarly LastPass Open Link with New Tab

One other thing: I have disabled all of my Add-ons/extensions and it seemed to fix the issue - but temporarily. As I turned each one back on individually I closed YT, closed FF, reopened both then selected a new YT video. It seemed to have a random effect - I thought I had figured out which extensions were the issue, but I tried it again to verify and got the same problem regardless which extensions were enabled/disabled.

I took a look at your addons & it could be the Disable Youtube Autoplay addon. But really its more likely its any kind of ad blocking addon you have because Youtube has gone full hardcore on blocking ANY kind of adblocking addon or tool you may be using. And will automatically skip a video you want to watch to the very end.

I don't think Grammarly or LastPass is breaking Youtube. But MalwareBytes Browser Guard & Web Threat Shield (from WebRoot) might be getting detected by Youtube as adblockers. Try disabling these 2 addons & testing Youtube for a longer period of time. If still seeing the videos playing super fast or skipping to the end, try disabling DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials.

Thank you for the reply. I am taking your advice and will work with the various extensions on/off for a few days then come back here to let you know the results.

It looks like you're using version Firefox 127.0.1. Please update before testing extensions.

Awesome work StopTheInsanity! Glad you were able to track it down to MalwareBytes Browser Guard. Youtube has gotten very aggressive about blocking anything that blocks its ads.
